Sam and Dean Winchester were seemingly killed off in Supernatural’s season 15 finale, “Carry On,” but might they possibly return for season 16? Supernatural’s success since its 2005 debut on The WB may be attributed in large part to the chemistry between series leads Jared Padalecki and Jensen Ackles. Misha Collins’s casting as the angel Castiel in season 4 gave the show a rating bump, and its popularity has remained relatively constant over the last decade.
The decision to discontinue Supernatural came from the program’s creators and cast members, not from The CW canceling the show. Ackles noted in his 2019 VegasCon speech, “It wasn’t an easy decision.” It took a long time; maybe many months. No one wanted the concert to end on a sour note. There were no more tales to be told on Supernatural after 15 years on TV, and the cast and crew knew it.
Supernatural Season 16 Renewal Status
I’m afraid not. After 15 seasons, the show has been put to rest. There will not be a Season 16 since Season 15 was the last. For example, Misha Collins told TVLine before the tenth season aired, “I’m stunned that the show is going as long as it is, not because I ever thought that it should be canceled or wouldn’t survive, but I joined in season four and thought… ‘Well, this is probably somewhere near the end of the show.'” To which Collins said, “Originally, five was going to be the end of it.”
Supernatural Season 16 is not in the works at this time. The series may, however, spawn a spinoff of its own, or perhaps a Young Winchesters series.
Supernatural Season 16 Cast
The actors of Supernatural Season 16 will not be attending. Due to the show’s cancellation after season 15, there will not be a season 16.
The sixteenth and last season ended not too long ago. The show’s primary characters from the previous seasons were all back for season 15:
- Jared Padalecki as Sam Winchester
- Jensen Ackles as Dean Winchester
- Alexander Calvert as Jack Kline and Belphegor
In the last season, we got to watch appearances from distinguished guests like:
- Jim Beaver as Bobby Singer
- DJ Qualls as Garth Fitzgerald IV
- Mark Pellegrino as Lucifer
In addition to these regulars, we also see:
- Ruth Connell as Rowena MacLeod

- Christian Kane as Lee Webb

Supernatural Season 16 Plot
Season 15 concludes with Dean’s death during a hunt, after which he begs his brother Sam to never bring him back. In a later chapter, we learn that Sam raised a kid of his own and that he lived to old age before passing away without further incident. Sam and Deam are finally reunited at the conclusion of the season with a warm embrace in paradise. In the end, everything worked out for the best of the characters. Therefore, the next season won’t include a whole lot of action.
However, there are still avenues open for the show to go on. Sam’s kid might be the protagonist of the novel as he strives to honor his father’s name. Alternatively, the realm of demons, angels, and monsters may be the subject of a spinoff. Watching old episodes of Supernatural will keep you occupied for the time being.
Supernatural Season 15 Recap
Despite the fact that Sam and Dean have both died several times throughout the course of Supernatural’s 15-year run on television, the series finale did all in its power to give them both a satisfying send-off. Dean gets murdered while hunting, and he begs Sam to not bring him back to life. In a glimpse into the future, we see that Sam eventually grew old, had a kid of his own, and passed away in his sleep. Supernatural concludes with a heartfelt embrace between Sam and Dean, who have been reunited in paradise along with the Impala.
Fans’ reactions to the finale have been diverse, but it’s unfortunate that they can’t all agree that Sam and Dean deserve a happy ending. Supernatural could still go on in a number of different ways, including a spinoff set in another part of the expansive world of demons, angels, and monsters that the show has built up, or by following Sam’s son as he attempts to live up to his father’s legacy (he has an anti-possession tattoo, demonstrating that he, too, is a hunter). One of the finest television supernatural series has 15 seasons for fans to revisit in the meanwhile.
Supernatural Season 16 Release Date
Since there has been no confirmation of season 16’s production, there is presently no set date for its premiere. Let’s just say that we don’t expect a new episode for quite some time. Is there hope for a revival? The show’s premise and continuity lend themselves to a second season. The program has built up a dedicated following throughout the years. Concerning the possible comeback, it would be foolish to rule out the possibility altogether, especially for such a long-running series. Especially when there is a dedicated following.
Where can I watch Supernatural?
